Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Stanislavsky and nonlinear theatre
by Anton, Craig, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 56; 1517574
Abstract (Summary)

This thesis maintains that many principles of Konstantin Stanislavsky's System, in regard to using his inner technique, apply to performing nonlinear theatre. Above all, it examines my own performance of Oppie in the California Repertory production, The Love Song For J. Robert Oppenheimer in the fall of 2011. Chapter 1 centers on the key components of the Stanislavsky System. Chapter 2 concentrates on my application of Stanislavsky's method in my performance as Oppie. Chapter 3 discusses how Stanislavsky's System can serve the actor in a non-realist genre of theatre.
